What I do:
I run a full-service agency completely, utterly, passionately focused on creating exceptional inbound marketing, events, creative and customer experiences. We plan and execute virtual and face-to-face campaigns that solve business problems, accelerate growth and empower human connections for corporate, retail, association, nonprofit and government clients. I get to travel the world speaking about gender equity, work-life balance and why events mean business. I am also a professional happy hour-er (Is that a word? We’re making it a word). 

How I got here:
I started out producing local festivals and progressed to running a large education association citywide. But due to my partner’s career, I’ve moved 12 times in 10 years. I needed a position that allowed me to continue to do a job I loved remote, anytime, anywhere. So, I started my own agency and committed to hiring others who were searching for the right kind of work-life balance in events and marketing. 

Impressive stats:
I’ve helped a startup brand launch a new product through an experiential marketing campaign that took a mailing list of 500 and grew it to 52,000 in one week through face-to-face field events and marketing automation.
